Welcome to Joan Miró Foundation

Joan Miró Foundation

A celebration of the life and work of world-renowned Catalan surrealist sculptor and painter, Joan Miró, the Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona houses the majority of the artists work including paintings, drawings, sculptures and textiles. Distinguished by his use of primary colours, simple lines and two-dimensional geometric shapes, Miro refused to be categorised into an established art movement and as a result continued to create unparalleled works of art. Another product of original artistic genius from Barcelona, the works of Miró at the Joan Miró Foundation allow visitors to further delve into the unrestrained creative energy of this exceptional city.
